Both the journalist and the cameraman were charged under IPC Section 504 (intentional insult to provoke breach of peace)

Karnataka Primary and Secondary Education Minister Tanveer Sait has registered a complaint against a journalist and his cameraman who shot a video of the minister as watching objectionable content during a Tipu Jayanti function.

“Based on the minister’s complaint, we’ve registered a case against the TV reporter and cameraman,” a police official said to TOI. Both the journalist and the cameraman were charged under IPC Section 504 (intentional insult to provoke breach of peace).

“I’m not aware of the development. I’ll speak to Tanveer Sait before reacting… (But) I’m not defending anyone. What’s important is whether the mistake has been committed. I don’t want an innocent person to get punished, regardless of the person’s stature or party affiliation. I won’t accept the report Sait submits to me. I will get the incident probed before initiating action,” Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah told TOI.

National president of Janata Dal (Secular) and former PM  HD Deve Gowda said the CM should keep a vigil on the issue. “The media has shown footage of Sait watching objectionable photos on his mobile. Instead of giving the minister a clean chit, the CM should order a probe into the incident. Now, a complaint has been filed against a media house,” Gowda said.
